Ad hoc steering group[edit | edit source]

A half a dozen people have formed an ad hoc steering group. A number of other individuals are interested in the project and may contribute to it in the future. But we could look forward to establishing a 'Task Group' to nurture its development.

Members of the ad hoc steering group:

An early task of this group was to consult other relevant people in July 2012 about what they thought of the prototype so far and got some useful feedback.

Conventions for this discussion page[edit | edit source]

Topics, threads and responses[edit | edit source]

Topics and sub-topics[edit | edit source]

Begin a new topic by giving it a Level 2 heading. e.g. the above topic will be typed in as ==Conventions for this discussion page==.

Give sub-topics a Level 3 heading e.g. === Topics, threads and responses ===.

Responses[edit | edit source]

A comment on a topic or sub-topic should be indented. This is done by placing a colon before the text:

:This is a comment

To comment on a comment, i.e. to continue a discussion, add another colon:

::This is a response to the comment.

Thus a dialogue will appear as:

Topic 1[edit | edit source]

Blah, blah, blah.

This is a comment on Blah, blah, blah.
This is a response to the comment on blah, blah, blah

Setting up the project[edit | edit source]

In setting up the project within the Wikiversity context, refer to this Wikiversity to do list.

The launch date - 7th September 2012. Project formally set up as described on this page and subsequently advertised to organisations and individuals globally.

Launch Log: /Launch Log

Conventions for the Project and its Pages[edit | edit source]

Page Conventions[edit | edit source]

  • There should be a summary giving the significant points of the page as the first paragraph and it should not have a heading so that it appears above the Contents box.
  • A set of standard sections is recommended (we need to decide that this is the best order):
    • Background
    • Research
    • Further Reading
    • Summary and or Discussion
    • Related Pages (which would be imported from a template giving the links to the other related pages in this area of the wiki)
    • References

Under Further Reading it is a good idea to set up a link to PubMed that will do a search using the topic of the page. E.g. the link will give a list of papers in the PubMed database on LRRK2 starting with the most recent.

There is a template for doing that: Template:PDLitSearch

There are some Navigational templates that could be useful.

Categories[edit | edit source]

A list of categories should be put at the bottom of every page. This is done using a link for each relevant category e.g. [[Category:Medicine]] [[Category:Neurobiology]] [[Category:Neuroscience]] [[Category:Parkinson's disease]].

Every page should be categorised at least with [[Category:Parkinson's disease]].

The Top level page, The_Science_Behind_Parkinson's, should also be put into the Category of Learning projects by putting [[Category:Learning projects]] at the bottom of the page. This will mean that it appears in the list of Wikipedia learning projects.

Schools and Departments[edit | edit source]

Eventually links to this project should be put in the Wikipedia lists of Schools and Departments (and the top level page should be put in the category of 'Learning projects'). The project should also be listed under the appropriate Portal.

Project Map[edit | edit source]

There should be a 'Site Map' for the project. This could be a separate PD Project Map page which gives the page and subpage hierarchy (or network for cases where a page has more than one parent - e.g. Hot Topics).

Every page should have a link to this Map page. Alternatively there could be a template to be included at the top of every page which gives the link to this page plus other information and links that should be standard on every page. This could display the project logo too, when we have one!
